I enjoyed using these tones of lime colour. Phthalo Green was my base colour and variations were made by adding lemon yellow, white, and for warmth, burnt sienna.

This one is really beautiful!
love the reflected light.

Phthalo Green is the only green on my main palette these days. It's so versatile, you can go from the darkest black to the lightest lime with it and if uses sparingly you can even use it in skintones.
It can be a challenging color to master due to it's intensity, but you're showing us here that you have this color perfectly under control.

Great painting!
